BIOGRAPHY

ARIEL SANTIAGO

During the summer months my parents would never let me go outside to play in the street during siesta time. It was the same for all my friends…it was very hot outside and as everyone else was sleeping you were supposed to sleep too. But I could never sleep during siesta time, it seemed like the most boring thing in the world. And I annoyed them so much that my parents would only let me stay awake if I promised to stay inside and not make too much noise. So I spent those hours alone in the house…drawing, painting, making up stories and even gadgets with supernatural powers. Customizing my bicycle, reading comics, making collages, writing, listening to my older siblings’ music and dreaming up videos for my favorite songs. One afternoon I started painting my own t-shirts… and another day I found my grandfather’s guitar in the corner of my father’s closet.

The rest is more of the same…

I leave you here with my work as Production Designer & Art Director.

You are what you do, not what you claim to be… 

Sobretodo en los veranos, mis padres nunca me dejaban salir a la calle a jugar a la hora de la siesta. Como a ninguno de mis amigos....  Afuera hacia mucho calor y todos estaban durmiendo. Así que había que dormir... Pero yo nunca pude dormir la siesta, me parecía lo mas aburrido del mundo. Y era tan molesto que mis padres me dejaban quedarme despierto si prometía quedarme dentro de la casa y no hacia mucho ruido. Así que me pasaba esas horas en casa solo... Dibujando, pintando, inventando historias y artilugios con poderes sobrenaturales. Personalizando mi bicicleta, leyendo comics, haciendo collages, escribiendo, escuchando la música de mis hermanos mayores e imaginando los video clips de mis canciones favoritas. Una tarde empecé a pintar mis propias camisetas... y otro día encontré la guitarra de mi abuelo guardada en un rincón del armario de mi padre... 

El resto es como una repetición de lo mismo...

Aquí les dejo mis trabajos como Production Designer & Director Artístico

Uno es lo que hace y no lo que dice ser...
